  1. The recent lunar orbiters have also taken pictures of the tracks left by the moon buggies.
  2. Scientists wouldn’t have just assumed that. They would have looked for proof, and used radioactivity and magnetism measurements to check what they had assumed, and found that they were wrong, and then revised what they thought. That’s the difference between them and you Scott, you don’t look for proof, you just rely on faith. It’s palpable nonsense.
  3. From a doc on facebook I’m an intensive care specialist in a small city. Coronavirus isn’t just like the flu, but it’s only really very dangerous to the elderly or the already unwell. Quite a lot of people in their 80s will die, but most of the rest of us will probably be okay. If you’re in your 70s and you get Coronavirus, you’ve got a really good chance of survival. If I’ve got a bed for you. If you’re in your 60s and you have a heart attack, you’ve got a really good chance of survival. If I’ve got a bed for you. If you’re in your 50s and need bowel cancer surgery, you’ve got a really good chance of survival. If I’ve got a bed for you. If you’re in your 40s and have a bad car accident, you’ve got a really good chance of survival. If I’ve got a bed for you. If you’re in your 30s and have terrible pre-eclampsia as a complication of pregnancy, you’ve got a really good chance of survival. If I’ve got a bed for you. If you’re in your 20s and have a bad reaction to a party drug, you’ve got a really good chance of survival. If I’ve got a bed for you. I have 7 beds equipped with life support machines. We have a plan to increase to about 25. Getting more isn’t a matter or more equipment or more money, that bit is easy. There are not enough skilled staff, even if we all work double shifts every day for six months (and we probably will). If 50% of my city gets infected, that’s 75,000 people. If 5% of them need life support (which is the estimate), that’s 3750 people. For 25 beds. And then I might not have a bed for you. So it’s up to you to flatten the curve. Wash your hands. Stay home.

  4. I was told that's the side he has a titanium plate in from a Judo injury, so it probably had little effect on him.

    Israel Folau

    What's even better is they got wind of it before it was announced and declared their home game pride day an hour before the dragons had made Folau's signing public.
  6. Rest of the year presents ample opportunity to lose the dressing room. Summer tour could be a month of getting whipped by two of the best teams in the world across two continents. Tough tour.
  7. I see the loony with the steam powered rocket has managed to kill himself.
  8. The DSCOVR spaceecraft is being brought back into full operation. That's the one that actually gives full images of earth in a single shot, for any of the flat earth loonies that want it.
  9. At Murrayfield, the booing starts when the crowd is of the opinion that the kicker has been faffing about for too long. It's something that needs to be looked at - the time limits that are meant to be in place aren't enforced, as was obvious on Saturday.
  10. Fortunately, no. It might turn out to be something called an instrument artefact, which is basically a way of saying 'this machine does that sometimes'. Although it seems fairly unlikely in this case, given the signal was detected on all three LIGO instruments in separate locations. The exciting thing is that there's been nearly a hundred years of people proposing mechanisms for producing gravitational wave signals (black holes collapsing, supernovae, neutron stars merging) and none of them have predicted a signal that looks like this one.
  11. Yeah, I saw that. Very exciting (unless they find out it's some kind of signal from the machinery).
  12. To be honest, Graham is now better than Seymour and Ritchie is better than Barclay. Still think Ali Price is one brainfart away from screwing up any game and would prefer George Horne as a starter. Shame we're such a mess as Wales and Ireland might be on a downward slope the next couple of years with the coaching changes and senior player retirements.
  13. Incidentally, wrt the Fermi Paradox, there's a whack of interesting stuff about the great filter online if you go and have a look. Have we passed through it, are we yet to approach it, where in the evolutionary chain would it hit. It's worth remembering that it took two and a half times longer to go from single celled life to multi celled life than it did to go from the first multi celled life to us now.
